Send connectors in Exchange

Dear experts,

I have question regarding send connectors in exchange 2010. There are now 2 exchange 2010 servers. One is old and should be decommissioned very soon. My question is what will happen with settings on organization and server level:

- organization level?
     - send connectors?
     - accepted domains
     - ....
- server level?

Someone told me that on the organization level there were no actions needed once the old server is decommissioned, all the configurations (= send connectors, etc...) will be automatically moved to the new server? is this correct? I'm still doubting if this is true. for example I can see in the properties of the send connector that the orgin server is the old one.

On the server level, we know that we must re-create all the configurations on the new server (= receive connectors, etc...).

Can some of the experts give us more explainations please? That would be great.

- organization level? - What changes you looking for Exactly ?
     - send connectors? - You will have to add the new server in the Bridgehead server list :)
     - accepted domains - Nothing changes with this :)
     - .... - ??
- server level? - The new server should have at least CAS, HUB and MBX to run all functions.

Anonymous users should be selected on the Receive connector of the new server :)

Hi Rancy,

on the organization level, if you look to the properties of send connectors for example (using powershell), you will see that it is pointing to the old one. We are just afraid when we decommission the old one that the routing will not work anymore.
Do you think it is enough to add the new HUB server in the tab of send connectors?

The articles that you gave they are not mentioning about send connectors.

K regards,

Do you think it is enough to add the new HUB server in the tab of send connectors? - If the old server isnt hosting any Mailboxes you should have the E2k10 server only ..... one more Q (How does the mail routing happen ?) ...... Is there a Router what is the settings to send receive emails ??

The routing works via a smart host and it is not a problem. The only problem is still the send connectors. If I decommission the old Exchange 2010 server. What will happen with the send connectors that initialy were created on the old one?

Thank you Rancy for you answer :), but are you sure that there will be damage or interruptio when we want to decommission the old Exchange 2010 server? Because this send connectors were origine from the old server. Do you have some good technet links please? I couldn't find a good article.

I will try to find or you can try to search on EE itself for it .... i have worked on some E2k10 to E2k10 migrations and stuff ...... there isnt any E2k10 to E2k10 migration but what i have always asked ppl is to check for E2k7 and E2k10 and just take care of all steps as the Plan would be very similar and always take the help of EXBPA :)
